A New Skin From "Shapes by Kira"

Oh dear…..I hadn’t blogged for such a long time! Maybe this was the longest since I’ve last logged in to update my blog. It’s not that I was lazy. No, far from it. I had been too busy directing shows which has quickly become one of my major jobs here in SL along with my modeling. I even had some pics taken for my blogs but alas, I simply had no time to write. 😦

I am back now with a new series of skin I just got!

Compared to a year ago, there are now so many great skins you can obtain in SL so it’s not that hard to find nice skins that can make avatars gorgeous. However, I have been looking for a skin that has the kind of brows that I like and this has proved to be more difficult than I had ever imagined. Maybe it had been a trend but many of the great skins I found had very strong and dark eye brows. Other issues I often found was that many skins had too much make up or was too strong in the colours they used.

What struck me the first thing I wore the demos I picked up was that the eye brows were exactly the type of eye brows that I was looking for. Not too dark but dark enough to make a statement. So I quickly teleported back to the store I just came back from, still wearing my demo skin.

The new Eva Skins that Kira Paderborn came up with are an evolution of an earlier skin to which Kira made improvements from feedback she received and it really was great skin that looked not only natural but had some great makeups. I liked the range of lip colours she offered too as I had been finding that some skins tend to have a lot of the pale pink/beige lips and different shades of it but when I wanted to wear more colours on my lips to match outfits, the colours would not be available. The Eva Skins has both pale and strong lips that also come in a variety of colours. Having had some makeup training in RL, I absolutely love makeups and love wearing different coloured makeups depending on what I wear even in RL. So the colour variation offered was a joy to see.

These are some of the makeups that were included in the fatpack. I have never been great with photo editing but these pics, I have decided to use without any editing at all. With editing, any skin can look great, right? So including the one above, none of the pics I am using today have been retouched.

I usually wear pale/fair skin tone but I do wear much darker skin tone also when I’m wearing swimming suits or with certain outfits that go better with darker skin. So I tried the darker skin demos too and loved this one called “Sun Kissed.” It had the similar makeup variety with the fair skins, but I had to refrain from spending too much on a single day but these “Sun Kissed” skins will definitely be my next shopping target once I save up again.

I might also add that Kira told me she will have a skin that will only be available at your booth in the Skin Fair that has just started or starting any minute as I write this (Sept. 26 – Oct 19). This will be one with smokey eyes and pale lips. Nice! I’m going to have to head to Skin Fair then since this variation will not be available in her store.

Run, run!!
